Ramat Hanadiv is constantly developing; thus construction, infrastructure preparation and road-building occur on a regular basis. The accumulated waste from these activities is separated for recycling: concrete and roof tiles are crushed to gravel which is used as the first filling layer when building roads. Additional construction waste is crushed together with rocks to make sand that is mixed with compost to produce the second layer of the road, and the rest of the construction waste is gathered into a container that is transferred to a landfill site.
